SOFIEE-programme-2016 (Sep. 2016)
We are pleased to invite you to submit a paper, poster or demo to the Symposium on Future Intelligent Educational Environments and Learning (SOFIEE) which will be held in London from the 12-13th September 2016, as part of the Intelligent Environments conference. This Symposium focuses on creating educational environments that are friendly, smart or intelligent, open, personalized, and can seamlessly support anytime anywhere learning or training. Intelligent not only refers to technology, but also to human processes and behaviours.
The core differentiating feature of this symposium is that the teaching environments are in some way smart or intelligent. Thus, there are a multiplicity of types of learning environments that are addressed by this such as smart buildings or classrooms, virtual & mixed reality environments, clouds and mobile learning systems that can interact with students and teachers at a pedagogical level, so as to bring true innovations to education. We will also include environments that support the learning of practical skills, such as science and engineering laboratories that are critical to students following STEM courses. In addition, the symposium also includes building a wider smart or intelligent campus infrastructure which can also impact the cost and effectiveness of education.
This Symposium will feature an inspiring keynote presentation and, in addition to the papers and demonstrations, will include an open panel discussion about the future of education. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review elsewhere. We welcome all papers that relate to the application of new smart and intelligent approaches to teaching, learning, or training.
Papers should address the most current research in creating a holistic next-generation smart education environment that is suited for the 21st century. This event thus offers researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders a forum to share ideas, insights and experiences, as well as to explore multidisciplinary research advances within the context of an intelligent learning environment.
Details of the event
The Symposium will feature (1) invited speakers session, (2) research papers session, and (3) interactive presentations such as SOFIEE-X.
